  1. 15" 4x100 Spacesaver wheel needed

    Ok, thanks. I'll keep looking but grab a 14 anyway!
  2. Hi Folks I have G60 brakes on my Lupo, so need 15" wheels. Does anyone know "and hopefully have" a 15 inch spacesaver wheel? I'm in Sussex! Newbloke!!
  3. Lupo 1.8T Weight

    Hiya lift off oversteer? Surprisingly well behaved I think, but maybe I drive like a little girl!!
  4. Lupo 1.8T Weight

    Hi Folks I have always wondered what my Lupo 1.8T weighed, so when I had the chance to run it up on a weighbridge the other day I did. So, it was a stock 1.0 without abs, but now obviously has the 1.8t on board. Stock front seats, no back seats fitted. Std VW suspension, but with VR6 front springs "thanks for the tip Rich" G60 front brakes and wheels, 2.5" stainless exhaust, front mount intercooler. And the answer is 999KG Drag files here to attach, or choose files... Insert other media Uploaded Images
  5. Hi Folks I have read piles of posts on brakes and can't find the answer on this, so it's hopefully easy? I have G60 calipers on my 1.8T Loop, which started life as a 1.0 Loop. It's just failed the MOT on a front flexies. Does anyone know which pipes I need? The current ones look very odd with a very long steel threaded section in the caliper, so I'm sure they are not stock. Cheers Newbloke
  6. Which Flexie hoses for G60 calipers, help!!

    Hi Folks Thanks for that, I think I have them sorted now, will post some pics if I'm still stuck!!
  7. Hardest Standard Springs for my 1.8T

    Hi Folks I'm trying to find which Lupo has the hardest standard springs? 1.7SDi I'm thinking because of the heavy diesel?? I want some harder springs for my 1.8T, but I don't want to loose ride height as the 1.8T sump is quite low. Anyone know?? Newbloke!!
  8. Hardest Standard Springs for my 1.8T

    Thanks Rich. Does it therefore follow that the MK3 Golf gti will offer one click back in hardness? Also, is the complete strut interchangeable? Cheers Chris
  9. Mystery Front Struts

    Hi Folks Ok I'm doing some work on my Mongrel Lupo 1.8T, and I'm just trying to identify some of the parts. Today it's front suspension. I got this lot of the sticker on the strut, any Ideas??? 6NO 4130315 26H2K1 UWA 192A I have typed it into google, but nothing sensible popped up. I've not found a build thread on Y248SDO, so if you have seen one let me know!!!
  10. Mystery Front Struts

    Great thanks
  11. Mystery Front Struts

    Aha, my goof! Thanks. So, OE for a 1.0?? If anything I want to gain ground clearance. I'm guessing a diesel probably has the hardest stock springs?
  12. New 1.8T Lupo

    Hi All Just got myself a 1.8T Lupo, be afraid, be very afraid!!!
  13. New 1.8T Lupo

    Well it's already in there and driving. It's got G60 front brakes in there, and did have coilovers on the front, but a previous owner has gone back to stock type setup, maybe GTi, don't know. It seems to handle ok, apart from the lack of power steering, anyone got a PS reservoir? Cheers
  14. New 1.8T Lupo

    My 1.8T is currently living in my Lupo , I think it started life as a 1.0. Anyone got a 2" exhaust. I have a 3" jobbie on there which is a bit low!!! Also any wheels, and a jack? I have No spare I'm in Sussex and happy to pick up.
